My In-Laws came for a visit yesterday. They were ever so kind enough to bring us a Flat of Strawberries. Me and the girls were in heaven. My hubby and son are not as big of fans as we are. Some ask, “What do you do with that many strawberries before they go bad?” Easy!
- We eat a huge portion! (High in fiber..low in calories. Win , Win)
- I wash and freeze some to use later.
- I make strawberry jelly
- Strawberry cookies
- Strawberry Muffins
- Strawberry Coffee Cake…whatever strawberry creation we are in the mood for.
With Valentines Day in the not so distant future, and me trying my best to avoid carbs 😉 . I decided to grace you all with Chocolate Covered Strawberries! These are super duper easy to make. I don’t know why they cost so much when you purchase them. I have seen them go for as much as $1 each. That is psycho! There is no logical reason they should cost that much.
So, do your-self and your sweetheart a favor and make a batch of Chocolate Covered Strawberries! Oh…by the way, if you use Ghiaradelli Chocolate these are Gluten and Dairy Free!
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
- Fresh Strawberries (Washed and dried)
- 1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- White Chocolate chips optional
Wash and Dry Strawberries. Make sure they are dry otherwise the chocolate will not want to stick.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
You could also dip these in white chocolate, or double dip them. Half and half. I have also taken and melted white chocolate and put it in a Ziploc bag. Snip the tip and drizzle over the tops of the chocolate berries. This makes them look so professional and yummy.
You could also sprinkle with sprinkles while chocolate is still wet, or chopped nuts. Really the sky is the limit on what you would like to decorate them with.
